Well, since the last update a lot has happened. We have had 3 outings. We hiked the Hogs Back, part of the Genesee county parks system. With a few photo opportunities. Then to a small (I would call a hobby) farm, for baby animal photos, as well as some photos of the old barns and equipment. Last was a trip to Kensington Metro Park. With lots of photo opportunities. We had an outdoor meeting scheduled for May 6th but was canceled due to rain. We have another Zoom scheduled for May 20th.
We have been invited to a couple of webinars from the Livingston Photo Group. (Thanks Livingston)
Hopefully we will be able to have a few more photo outings throughout the summer.
Hopefully with the vaccine being administered we will be able to return to some kind of normalcy for the upcoming fall start.
Stay healthy and safe.

You do need to be a member to enter photos in the monthly photo review.
Competition Criteria: You can enter photos in each category:
Open, Subject, Nature, Modified, [Monochrome (black & white)], exhibition & cell phone
Photos in each category must match that categories NAME
Any 'altered' photos should be entered in the Open or Modified categories. This does not mean normal post editing like exposure, contrast, shadow, highlight, tone, misc. This would be photos that are comprised of more than one or merged items, or extremely altered.
We no longer have a monthly competition. It is a photo review by the club with member suggestions and input. It allows members to see the creativeness of other members and to question and learn new Technics and methods of taking as well as editing their own photos. Members are ask to bring their photos on a thumb drive to the 2nd meeting of the month (3rd Thurs), they are loaded to the club laptop for viewing. Photos need to be grouped together by categories for ease of loading to computer. Each member is encouraged to elaborate on their photos but not required ( what inspired them to take the photo, where, when & how, any special editing or procedures used to take the photo). And ask for or share tips for improving their and others photos as well.
